The future of Europe

Europe will not be made all at once, or according to a single plan. It will be built through concrete achievements which first create a de facto solidarity’. So said Robert Schuman in his famous declaration, launching the European integration project on 9 May 1950. Almost 70 years on, his words are as true as ever. The solidarity between Europe’s people and nations must constantly be adapted to deal with the new challenges posed by a changing world. What can I do for the future of the European Union to survive and grow in the coming decades? What can I do, as a member and citizen of the European Union that at the time of emerging denominations such as the […]

Wolfgang Koeppen

An underestimated and too little appreciated German author. Wolfgang Koeppen was born in 1906, in a small city called Greifswald. Having a restless childhood in terms of many relocations, he quit school before graduating because of financial reasons. This, however, didn’t keep him from secretly visiting lectures at the university, especially concerning German philology. Although wanting to be a director, he ended up being a prompter, usher, and actor. Just as dramatic as his life has been proceeding, so was the situation in Germany. Having lived through two World Wars, Koeppen must have seen a lot of brutality and inhumanity. He manages, like nobody else, to process his emotions about these happenings in a trilogy of novels. The first of […]

Stanislaw Lem

A Polish writer of science fiction, philosopher and futurologist. Lem was born in Lviv to a family of a laryngologist.

A writer of the Revolution

Pierre Choderlos de Laclos was a French writer from the 18th century. His masterwork is the epistolary novel Les Liaisons dangereuses, published in 1782. Today, there are several cinematographic adaptations of the book. For a long time considered as scandalous and immoral, the novel was until recently read behind closed doors. It deals with the libertine sexuality of two nobles, la Marquise de Merteuil et le Marquis Valmont, in the time of the coming Revolution. Scholars often highlight how common and ‘normal’ was the life of Laclos. He was a good husband, a good father, and a successful officer. So, a lot of questions abound about how he could have written such an audacious and blazing novel and how paradoxical […]

European Union and the elections

This article is about the importance of the European Union and the next European election. Since I applied for my voluntary service on Madeira I realized how important European connections and projects are to get to learn new languages, cultures and moreover to develop further as a human being, such as a big community. Being part of the European Union makes me aware of many benefits we have because of this interconnectedness. Our possibility to go abroad has changed a lot in the last few years and it is getting easier with every year. As a result of the EU, we have more chances to take part in Erasmus projects or student exchanges than ever before. But being part of […]

Alfândega Nova

Alfândega Nova A primeira alfândega do Funchal, junto da Ribeira de Santa Luzia, foi fundada em 1477. A partir de 1515, el-Rei D. Manuel I de Portugal mandou erguer a Alfândega Nova no seu canavial-de-açúcar o Chão do Duque. A obra viria a ser colocada sob a direcção de Pêro Anes, mestre-carpinteiro da Catedral do Funchal. Nos séculos seguintes, o edifício foi fortificado e ampliado e em 1940 tornou-se Monumento Nacional. Nos anos 1980, a Alfândega Nova foi reabilitada pelo Arquitecto Chorão Ramalho, para acolher a Assembleia Legislativa Regional, incorporando-se uma moderna ala Sul sob o antigo fosso da fortaleza de Santo António da Alfândega. Da construção manuelina existem a enorme Sala dos Contos, reservada à arrecadação dos materiais taxados, […]
